This  is  a  digital  copy  of  a  book  that  was  preserved  for  generations  on  library  shelves  before  it  was  carefully  scanned  by  Google  as  part  of  a  project 

to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 

to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 

are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  maiginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the 

publisher  to  a  library  and  finally  to  you.

prevent  abuse  by  commercial  parties,  including  placing  technical  restrictions  on  automated  querying. 
We  also  ask  that  you:

+  Keep  it  legal  Whatever  your  use,  remember  that  you  are  responsible  for  ensuring  that  what  you  are  doing  is  legal.  Do  not  assume  that  just 
because  we  believe  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  the  United  States,  that  the  work  is  also  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  other 
countries.  Whether  a  book  is  still  in  copyright  varies  from  country  to  country,  and  we  can't  offer  guidance  on  whether  any  specific  use  of 
any  specific  book  is  allowed.  Please  do  not  assume  that  a  book's  appearance  in  Google  Book  Search  means  it  can  be  used  in  any  manner 
anywhere  in  the  world.  Copyright  infringement  liabili^  can  be  quite  severe.

Aug.  8.  Whereas  the  king  by  divers  letters  patent  lately  granted  to  Bobert  de 

Henley.  Eildesby  the  prebend  of  Southcave,  in  the  church  of  St.  Peter,  York  as 
void  by  the  death  of  cardinal  Neapoleon  and  in  his  gift  by  reason  of 
voidanc^  of  the  archbishopric  of  York,  and  afterwards  learning  that  the 
cardinal  was  alive  at  the  time  of  the  grant  but  had  since  died  revoked  the 
first  grant  and  on  8  April,  in  his  sixteenth  year,  collated  the  prebend  then 
actually  void  and  in  his  gift  by  reason  of  the  archbishopric  being  then  also 
in  his  hands  to  Master  Paul  de  Monte  Florum,  the  said  Robert  without  his 
knowledge  and  against  his  will  surreptitiously  caused  the  letters  patent  of  his 
collation  to  the  prebend  to  be  renewed  under  a  new  date  after  the  cardinal's 
death,  subsequent  to  the  date  of  the  said  revocation  and  collation  of  the 
prebend  to  Master  Paul,  of  which  the  said  Robert  was  not  ignorant,  on  hearing 
of  which  the  king  was  greatly  disturbed  insisting  on  the  removal  of  Robert 
from  the  prebend  as  the  chancellor  could  not  renew  letters  patent  without 
his  order.  But  the  said  Robert  is  now  dead  and  the  king  considering  that 
the  collation  to  Master  Paul  never  took  effect  and  as  the  prebend  is  still 
in  his  gift  has  collated  the  same  to  Henry  de  Ingelby,  king's  clerk,  and  on 
his  prosecuting  before  the  justices  of  the  Bench  for  a  declaration  of  the 
king's  right  herein,  there  were  produced  there,  as  is  said,  letters  patent

among  other  things  that  the  king  had  collated  the  prebend,  void  by  the

death  of  the  cardinal  in  the  time  when  the  archbishopric  was  void,  to  the 
said  Robert,  and  that  he  by  virtue  of  such  collation  had  been  canonically 
admitted  to  and  was  in  possession  of  the  prebend  and  so  the  king  ratified 
his  estate  therein,  by  pretext  whereof  the  justices  deferred  rendering 
judgement  for  the  king;  in  the  interests  of  truth  the  king  wills  that 
it  be  publicly  known  that  the  letters  of  renewal  as  well  as  the  letters  of 
confirmation  were  surreptitiously  obtained  because  it  was  never  his 
intention  to  recite  that  the  said  Robert  was  canonically  admitted  to  the 
prebend  by  virtue  of  the  king's  collation  or  to  approve  his  title,  although 
perhaps,  at  the  request  of  some,  he  consented  to  tolerate  his  holding  the 
prebend  in  his  time ;  and  so  the  king  declares  those  letters  of  renewal 
and  ratification  were  made  against  his  will  and  are  entirely  without  force

Thomas  Deschalers,  knight,  to  bring  to  that  gaol,  and  whereas  John  by 
accident  escaped  from  the  keeping  of  the  same  Thomas  ;  the  king  caused 
both  the  sheriff  and  Thomas  to  come  before  the  council  to  answer  for  the

their  manor  of  Hertfordyngbury,  co.  Hertford,  there  is  contained  that  the 
homage  and  services  of  the  said  Reynold  of  the  manor  of  Wilton  had 
been  granted  to  Richard  and  Elizabeth  by  the  king,  yet  inasmuch  as 
nothing  was  said  of  such  homage  and  services  in  the  agreement  for  the 
exchange,  as  is  quite  certain,  and  the  hundred  and  the  manor  of  W^orme- 
lowe,  whereof  no  extents  were  made  in  the  exchange  nor  due  process  had, 
much  exceed  in  value  the  manor  of  Hertfordyngbury,  and  nevertheless  the 
king  paid  to  Richard  500  marks  for  wood  pertaining  to  the  latter  manor, 
whereby  it  is  evident  that  in  the  exchange  he  was  manifestly  deceived,  he 
has  revoked  so  much  of  the  charter  as  relates  to  the  grant  of  the  homage 
and  services  ;  and  straitly  enjoining  on  him  at  his  peril  not  to  attorn  to 
Richard  and  Elizabeth  by  pretext  of  the  charter  or  of  any  mandate  of  the

Pardon  as  above  to  John  de  Bruggeford  of  Notyngham,  outlawed  in  the

account  of  the  time  when  he  was  his  bailiff  in  Wyberton  and  his 
receiver. 

Pardon  to  William  Robyn  of  Sutton  of  the  county  of  Essex,  in  con-
